THE GROWING PHENOMENON OF INTERNETS

By / 12.04.09

Here’s an awesome CBC news report from the late 80′s or early 90′s on “the growing phenomenon of internet”, including astute quotes like this:

John Allen says it’s a modulated anarchy. 

“There’s an interesting kind of restraint that you find.  I mean, there’s not a lot of cursing or swearing.  There’s not a lot of personal cuts.  There’s not a lot of put downs that one would expect to find.  There’s not screenfulls of ‘Go to hell.’ it’s just surprising.” [Ohhaveyouseenthis]

Watch as the helmet-haired anchor tries to explain emoticons in his fake anchor voice.  Ah, some things never change.  P.S. Go to hell, John.  Your face is stupid.  DIAF.
